Red Lentil & Chorizo Soup
This Red Lentil & Chorizo Soup is a real winner in my house. We are big chorizo fans in my family. Chorizo is a Spanish sausage made from pork meat and lots of spices including paprika. These spices give it its intense flavor and color. I love to add it to soups and stews for an unbeatable depth of flavor.
Start this soup by frying chorizo until it is crispy. Fry onion, carrots, garlic and cumin seeds in the chorizo oil before adding paprika, sugar and vinegar. Add lentils, tomatoes and chicken stock and simmer until the lentils are tender. Blend and serve garnished with yogurt, olive oil, crispy cooked chorizo and a sprinkle of paprika. Enjoy!
To make the Red Lentil & Chorizo Soup, you will need the following ingredients:

When I made this I was expecting more of a spicy taste, which it didn't have. But it was still delightful.
I'll be making this again but this time with a bit more spices, there wasn't enough flavor in it for me.
The recipes on this page are the best, I bookmarked this and the Kale mushroom salad, my two favorites so far.
Going to be sharing this recipe with my close friends so that I can see what they all mix with theirs and get some more ideas for it, delicious.
Great recipe, the chorizo and paprika blend well together, thanks for sharing.
Tasty and easy to make, couldn't ask for a better bowl of soup.
I'm happy with how it taste but I don't like the amount of time I had to put into it since it's just a soup.
I added chicken meat to mine because I'm a huge meat lover and I really liked it! :)
Very filling for a soup, I recommend that if you make this to just have it with some bread and not another meal, this will make you full.
Going to be honest, this plate is the BOMB, I'd recommend this for people who have a love for soup and chorizo!
Chorizo with paprika sounded a bit odd to me since I've never made anything like this but in the end I have no regrets, I'm very pleased.
I appreciate this recipe more than you'll know, this was my soup of choice to make for my date and instantly we were both satisfied with the food, I got a LOT of compliments for it, best bowl of chorizo soup EVER!!
Heaven on earth served to you in a bowl with delish cooked chorizo.
Love this so much!! I made it with cheesy garlic bread and served it to my husband with some white wine, we both had an amazing dinner thanks to you!
Making this was so easy and it taste FANTASTIC! going to be making this every week.
Enjoyed this red lentil soup a lot, thanks.
Made this for a family night out at grandmas house and everyone loved it, my mom was never more proud that I could make soup that tasted as good as this, lol!
Super happy with this and so are my kids, everyone enjoyed this meal for dinner, very satisfied stomachs for sure :)
Can't believe I never tried to make this before, this is VERY delicious! Thanks so much for sharing.
Boy does this take a while to make or what? Totally worth it though, really good soup with some black bread.
Well done! Verified!
